Today, I handed my boss my 2 weeks' notice. 20 minutes later, I was doing my work alone in the very cold basement of the building. My boss claimed it was a routine relocation planned months in advance. It's going to be a long 2 weeks. FML

I have a feeling you're about to come down with a very nasty flu that will keep you out of work for, oh, about 2 weeks.

I'm pretty sure there are laws about providing a suitable work environment.

at that point, fuck the 2weeks. I know you shouldn't, but that's bullshit.

I would just walk out. that's some messed up shit

This is his chance to be a total dick to his boss/slack off and it wont even matter.

You're leaving the job. Who cares what they think. If the next job has an issue, tell them. You gave notice and were punished for it.

This is the part where you get pissed b/c they didn't give you your stapler back and burn the building down...

Something about red staplers eh!

Don't wait 2 weeks tell him now and get it over with.

#2 then it would look bad on OP to future employers

It wouldn't look bad at all. The two weeks is a courtesy. His boss has shown he doesn't understand that. The risk here is a future employer will call him for a reference, but at this point I can't imagine he would give out a good one regardless.

I'm pretty sure there are laws about providing a suitable work environment.

OSHA requires employers to provide a safe work environment, but they also would (perhaps more so) be protected under various Anti-Retaliation laws.

That sounds a little like brutality and bullshit from your boss to me. I'm very sorry OP..

Go to HR about that, the guy sounds like a class A dick

I have a feeling you're about to come down with a very nasty flu that will keep you out of work for, oh, about 2 weeks.

Just needs a doctor's note to make it valid. Hmmmm?

Valid or not by the time they ask for it he'll be gone anyhow. Hey it's still flu season.

Now OP can honestly say that a doctor told him that he has the flu.

Working in a cold basement will do that to ya

Generally as per HR exit policies it is not allowed to take leave during notice period for any reason, if done so one may be required to work extra days as per the terms of employment. So OP may have to serve 15 days notice,which may delay his further future plans.

We all know the history of the term "relocation"

That's cold

All I can say is FYL. This is...wow. FYL indeed.

fuck it, just quit and find a new job
